We develop standards and protocols with engineers and policy colleagues around the world to help businesses reshape and redesign their digital services with children and young people in mind. We also publish and lead across our policy areas to formulate new thinking and solutions to address the challenges posed by the digital world, so it caters for children and young people by design and default. Our focus is strongly oriented towards achieving real-world change, through shaping legislation, regulatory frameworks, and industry best practice.
